This train needs to be speeded up...only way is to take away some stops I think....... :(...if more and more stops are augmented it would further slow down the train and the overtakes too..... :(

So many stop within <10 km each. This is due to politics. I remember about a rail roko strike happened after Railway decided to remove Pudukkad stop (which is merely 10km from Trichur). How can people expect last mile connectivity from a long distance train (~1000km). People just don't care. Ultimate stupidity.

More stops are given between ERS and KCVL as the passengers from these areas dont have any other option and this is the only daily train to Bangalore via Alappuzha. So i feel, it wont matter much for passengers boarding beyond ERS towards SBC.

But after adding all these stops has the time changed or speed reduced?. I had travelled once by this train when after bangalore it used t stop at salem. One good thing to see was there were hardly any waitlisted passenegrs in sleeper and travel was quite comfortable. Overall speed was also good

Instead better to extend KCVL-SBC to TVC and MS-TVC Ananthapuri to KCVL....such that direct connectivity to SBC can be established....

If it extended to KCVL..I think extra pitline....and also it can retain its name since its only extended to its suburbs....and KCVL-SBC can be extended to TVC for direct connectivity to SBC.......MS-TVC Ananthapuri can be a connecting train to KCVL-UBL Exp,KCVL-YPR AC Exp from TVC......Well Guess so..

Re# 896453-6            Tags   Past Edits
the connecting factor is true. But KCVL-SBC has PM at KCVL, Ananthapuri has PFTR in TVC. Obviously KCVL-SBC wont have day time PM slot available at TVC.
Parasu had PM at MAQ, but a Over night stabling line was available at TVC for Parasu. So 12678 can easily be extended to TVC. 12678 is a lean performer in case of reserved seats, I agree for obv reasons that patronage for ICE wont reflect in reservation statistics, but it can cater as a load reliever for JS,Ernad, Parasu, Venad and also UR travellers of Rapthi group, Netra, Sabari etc.

I dont remember exactly, few months back railway has run AC Special to TVM via PGT, CBE. It was having good patronage. I had a chance to travel in it. It leaves MAS at 9pm, it was scheduled to reach KCVL around 1pm. That timing was nice. If, replacing, i will vote for this timing, am sure it will be big hit and more over current rake can be also used
